Subject: RE: Sound Of Pear-Shaped Tones
Well, if you've heard it since childhood, you may have heard it in Disney's Cinderella. The evil stepmother sings, "in pearrrr shapedddd tonnnes...'" right before the stepsisters begin their horrible rendition of "Sweet Nightengale". But, lol, I seriously doubt they had any place in coining the phrase.
